This demonstration presents the development of a virtual reality (VR) research project for the VR interaction and digitization of "Sodeisha Sculptural Ceramics", a transmedia approach showcases photogrammetry scanned Japanese ceramic artworks in an educational and public VR exhibition setting. The early prototype has involved the photogrammetry scanning of 10 sculptural ceramic works of art. These works were created by the innovative Japanese post-war artist group, known as ‘Sodeisha’. Newcastle Art Gallery holds one of the largest collections of Sodeisha ceramics outside of Japan and recently featured the collection in a large-scale exhibition titled SODEISHA: connected to Australia from March – May 2019. The audience used controllers to interact with objects in a virtual environment, with the option of seeing a pair of VR hands or full VR arms.
